Abstract

This paper analyzes the available data on local finances for Seoul and its satellite cities. The paper documents the trends of revenues and expenditures for 1973-1982 to study the fiscal performance of individual local governments compared with that of Seoul. The findings indicate that the rapidly growing satellite cities outperformed Seoul in terms of their ability to generate revenues owing largely to the increased tax bases. The distribution of transfer payments, however, favoured Seoul, contrary to the central government's objective of deconcentrating population and employment in the region.
